he was able to swim out about 20 feet and down about eight feet, but had zero visibility in that water. by touch he was able to locate the car, but then had to get out of the water because of the frigid temperatures. the santa clara county dive team then arrived and was able to pull that woman from the car. but by that time she had been under water for 42 minutes. >> everybody feels like their hands were tied. well were trying to get in as fast as we could. just because of the visibility in the water, just weren't able to see anything going on without the proper equipment. and the temperatures. so, you know, again, kudos to the dive team for coming out here and being able to come out so quickly and at least give the occupant of the vehicle a chance. >> reporter: authorities say cpr was being done on the way to the hospital, where, again, the victim was pronounced dead there are no other people inside the car, which they pulled out of the water about an hour ago. live in san jose, kimberly tere, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, kimberly.
